Agile in a Regulated Environment – Advice from a “Blues Traveler”

Add to calendar

Implementing Agile practices in a regulated industry has its own set of unique challenges. Learn what worked and didn't work at Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) and WellCare Health Plans as they adopted Agile practices in product and software development within their regulated organizations.

Join Leon Sabarsky as he shares his advice and lessons learned on implementing Agile at the Blues and other healthcare organizations. Some or their particular challenges included scaling up, connecting with non-agile PMO’s, reconfiguring our traditional testing processes, and figuring out how to effectively integrate with widely distributed teams.

No silver bullets here. Just real stories, of real agile, in the blues.
